Aquarela do Leme

Leme, Rio de Janeiro

At the hostel, rooms include a patio with a sea view.

Modern Art Museum is 9 km from Aquarela do Leme, while Escadaria Selarón is 10 km from the property. The nearest airport is Santos Dumont Airport, 10 km from the hostel. One of the best experiences I had in hostels. The crew is amazing, the place is outstandingly beautiful, very light, and clean. The energy of the place is really overwhelming with the Pipoca (the dog) and the children. So close to everything, I really liked my stay and indicate this place to everybody that wants to enjoy Rio :)

Hostels. What are they?

Way more than just a cheap place to sleep, hostels are a social way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens or games rooms are great ways to swap tips, tricks and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world. <br><br> Hostels have come a long, long way since the first youth hostel opened in 1912. From budget 'crash-pads' to five-star 'poshtels', today, hostels are for everybody, so whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll find most hostels are cheaper than a local hotel and far more fun.
